I love hand quilting but don’t have the time to do large projects so hand quilting a doll quilt now and then fills that desire. I’m doing big stitch quilting on this and you’ll notice my stitch length is not all that consistent but I’m OK with that. It would take a lot more practice than I have time for so I’ll just do the best I can and enjoy myself. I don’t usually use a hoop for these because I tend to quilt long straight lines but I’m quilting around the triangles and the hoop is working well. On the triangles on the edges of the quilt, I’ll quilt without the hoop.
I also finished Pink Bear today and that’s the last doll quilt I have that’s finished … did you notice that one was also hand quilted? My stitches don’t look too bad!
There are 10 bears in quilts ready to donate and I think I’ll make a brown bear next to go with the one I’m quilting now. And I might have dropped a hint or two last night when I was talking to Mom about doll quilts. She likes working on smaller projects these days so we’ll see if she decides to make a doll quilt or two!
